No SAS mezz card for G8 blades?

So I went to order some 460c G8 blades but have been told that the SAS mezzanine cards that were used in the G7's, don't work (don't physically fit) in the G8's. AND, there's no suitable replacement yet.

 

Does anyone know if/when HP are releasing SAS mezz cards for the G8 blade servers?

Late reply but it seems a Smart Array P721m Controller would be the SAS mezz for a Gen8 blade.

Thanks for the info. Must have only just been released in the last couple of days. No pricing for Australia yet apparently.

 

Too late anyway as we have already ordered DL380's instead.
